Singapore rock band Lunarin invites remixes for their CC-licensed track
- 20 Oct 2010 – MP3 versions for the individual tracks are available at www.archive.org]
- 26 Nov 2010 – Lunarin has compiled the submissions of their remixes into a digital album titled, “The Void: A collection of remixes of Lunarin’s ‘The Sky (Algiers)’“
Singapore rock band Lunarin is a three-person outfit, who say they bang out “heavy art rock riffs in a hope to shock people“.
Extracted from their post, dated 10 Oct 2010, “Show us what you can do with The Sky (Algiers)”:
… Shortly after the album was released, we conducted a poll to ask people which was their favourite track off “Duae”. Interestingly enough, there was an overwhelming response in favour of The Sky (Algiers). We therefore decided to make The Sky (Algiers) available for free download for some of you peeps to take a shot at remixing it.

The GarageBand file contains 16 individual track layers, i.e. vocals, guitars, bass, drums. Offers lots of possibilities for different styles, re-arrangement of tracks, effects applications and so on.
While there are Singapore musicians who have adopted CC licenses for their music, so far Lunarin is the only established (i.e. they have a real fan base) band who have provided a multi-track specifically for remixing.
